Re: HP printer saga

After realizing that I must enable loopback device, I configured Cups to use my HP 656c printer. From www.linuxprinting.org I have downloaded the ppd file and copied it to the /usr/share/cups/model/. The configuration went without any problems.

I set up KDE to use Cups but when I sent something to be printed, nothing happens.

What should I do?
thanks to anyone,

Aug  6 21:35:48 kompi hpijs: unable to init hpijs server

Check the pppd file you got from www.linuxprinting.org. I suspect it also needs the hpijs package to work properly. If so, you will have to install it (the hpijs package).

If this is NOT the problem (hpijs package already installed) come on back with the CUPS packages you have installed and the VERSIONS. I am currenely running the packages from "unstable" and they have (or used to have) a few "gotchas" to get running. It involved the glibc and gcc transition going on right now. The ones from stable or testing were OK about a month ago.
